1980 final, Rome

West Germany re-established themselves as Europe's pre-eminent international force as two goals from Horst Hrubesch, the second with only two minutes remaining, earned Jupp Derwall's side their second European title with a 2-1 victory against Belgium.

West Germany had made a slow start to the 1976 final, going two down within the first 25 minutes, but there was no repeat this time as Bernd Schuster, the 20-year-old playmaker who once again dazzled in midfield, set up Hrubesch for the opening goal on ten minutes.

Though Belgium's hopes were raised by René Vandereycken's 75th-minute penalty, Hrubesch headed in late on to sink them.

Italy 0-1 Republic of Ireland
(Brady 85)
2016 group stage, Lille

On a day of high drama at UEFA EURO 2016, Robbie Brady's 85th-minute header gave the Republic of Ireland the victory against Italy they needed to qualify from Group E and set up a last-16 contest with France.

Lorenzo Insigne curled a shot off the post, but Ireland looked the more likely to prise a winner, Wes Hoolahan firing straight at Salvatore Sirigu with the goal at his mercy seven minutes from time.

Just over 60 seconds later, though, it was Hoolahan's pinpoint cross that allowed the marauding Brady to nod in and send the vast bank of Ireland fans into raptures.
